Great Railway Inn

Easy to find, lovely little site, very friendly welcome, no problem with the gate. Trains not a problem for me as live close to a railway line. Foot path runs along side site so easy for dog walkers, as this is a public footpath others use it and sadly do not always clean up after their dogs. I had an evening meal Saturday with a drink and coffee and on Sunday a Small Sunday lunch with a drink along with site fee the whole lot was £35 for the weekend. Overall very pleased, unable to comment of facilities used electric hook up but have own toilet and wash facilities. Well worth it.

A Fab New Yr.

Had a brill stay at the Railway yet again. So welcoming from Carly and Mick and the wonderful staff and locals. We ended up mixing with three lovely gents who made New Yrs eve what its meant to be. The music was ideal for all which Carly put on free gratis along with the lovely buffet. We will be back again beginning of Feb for a dogshow at Newark and then May BH. Thank you Carly and staff for making us so welcome AGAIN. Really enjoyed it. Happy New Yr to you all. Bryan & Ann. xx

Cheap and cheerful

The Railway Inn is a good little site. It’s a field behind a great pub with friendly locals and good choice of food. The price went up to £12.00 but club site not updated. The gate is somewhat difficult to cope with but once done keeps the site secure. The mainline from Nottingham to Lincoln and the east coast ports runs adjacent and there are up to 4 passenger trains an hour of either one or two car units. During the day we saw maximum 3 long goods trains. At night same again but unless you are really picky they won’t affect you. Earplugs worked for the boss. The staff at the pub are very friendly, know the area well and helpful. The site is straight forward, the pub with an outbuilding on the rear with a toilet and shower. We found it clean and well maintained. Our caravan has its own toilet and shower so no queues. Every day there is a special for £6.00. Main and a sweet. Excellent value. The regular menu goes from steaks to egg and chips. Drinks quite cheap as well. Great for a stopover or a few days. Park at the Waitrose to the north of Lincoln and use the bus pass friendly Park and Ride. 50p for the dog.

This C.L. Spoiled for us when a sixth outfit pitched up.

We received a warm welcome although we were not shown where any facilities were.It is a major problem when the W.C. is located within the wet room as this causes queueing particularly WHEN THERE ARE MORE THAN FIVE OUTFITS PITCHED.I note that this exceeding the five van limit was noted in another review.We were charged £12-00 per night but the website entry says £8-00. The wetroom is not well thought out as the fall is partly away from the shower drain and there is no mirror or shelf for cosmetics.The wetroom is not particularly clean or well maintained. There are several freight train movements throughout the night and these are fairly noisy, The metal gate to the field needed two of us to unlock and open it on departure and this might be tricky for solo caravanners.There does not appear to be recycling available. We are unlikely to use this C.L.again as we feel it falls short in several areas.

EXCELLENT CAN'T FAULT IT A LITTLE GEM

Just returned from our Easter Weekend getaway and what a fantastic relaxing weekend we have had despite the weather. The site itself is lovely and flat plenty of room for everyone although this weekend only our 3 caravans plus a Motorhome that came for 1 night only.Toilet and shower very clean and adequate for our needs. Plenty of hook up points available around the field . Great for walking area for our 3 dogs too without leaving the site.and also a lovely nature reserve to walk around nearby too.. The pub itself brilliant Carly her husband and all staff were very friendly as were the locals who made you feel very welcome . The food was excellent too as were the staff who worked in the restraunt checking that our meals were ok . Would MOST DEFINITELY VISIT THIS CL AGAIN.. top marks given by us 💟
